I was making a paper bag mini and messed up the gluing and where I punched my holes so instead of throwing them away, I made flowers.
How to make a paper bag flower:
*You can use lunch bags or grocery store bags. These are lunch bags. The grocery store bags will be thicker. You will have to spray a little more water on them when scrunching them up.
2. Cut 5 different size circles. I used decorative edge scissors.
3. Spray them with water, scrunch them up and dry.
4. I then used hot glue to glue all 5 layers together. I glued the first layer onto a 1 inch circle as a base. I glued them really quickly and used a fair amount of hot glue. When all 5 pieces were down, I pushed the center down and pinched it together. This gives it more dimension.
*Be careful to not burn yourself. You could use a pair of tweezers to do this. I just used my fingers. They are like leather from years of being burned with hot glue so it didn't matter to me. :)
5. If you want to add a center, go ahead and do that. I used glitter glue and some bling on a couple and on one I didn't. I just scrunched up the center more.
I hope you like this project. Let me know if you have made some paper bag flowers yourself or decide to give it a try. I'd love to see what you've made and post it.
